.m. eastern on the economy. that issue of the economy directly touches on the dysfunction in washington that americans said they hate. they went to bed election night hoping to fix that. speed really matters here. in just seven weeks the bush tax cuts expire, automatic spending cuts agreed to by both parties kick in. we call it the fiscal cliff and even though it's more like the fiscal steep slope it could do some very bad things to the economy. concerns about rolling down it or falling off it or whatever you want to call it have made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not hammering out a deal in time. politicians in both parties, they've been sending out mixed signals ever since the election. on the one hand they're talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in america that isn't burdened by debt. that isn't threatened by a warming planet. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> if there's

. >>> welcome back, everybody. you're watching our special coverage of the election live from washington, d.c. this morning. with less than 24 hours to go, the candidates are focusing on the biggest prizes. those elusive swing states. right now, cnn has pennsylvania lean obama but both campaigns are fighting for the key stone state. today president obama is deploying bill clinton there, for four campaign stops. just one day after mitt romney took the state in pennsylvania, the theme from "rocky." pat toomey is a republican senator from pennsylvania. he campaigned with both romney and paul ryan this weekend. he joins us this morning. nice to see you, sir. thanks for talking with us. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> appreciate that. we've heard sort of mixed messages on the state of pennsylvania. so lay it out for me. listen to republicans, they say pennsylvania is definitely in play. if you talk to the democrats, david plouffe said it's a sign of desperation to talk about pennsylvania. let me play for you what he said and then we'll answer that on the other side. >> we have a great
the senate. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar is live from washington, d.c. for us this morning. brianna, speaker boehner seemed to be offering the president on olive branch earlier this week when he talked about the possibility of increasing revenue. but here he's taking a hard stance against tax increases. what does that say about the chances of a compromise? >> well, it may actually sound kind of like it's splitting hairs. but it's really two different things where he's talking about increasing tax rates. he says he's not okay with that. but he would be maybe okay, maybe amenable to increasing revenue. to bringing in more tax dollars, because there is a difference. and what he's saying is part of a chorus of conciliatory language that we're hearing from democrats and republicans on the hill. listen to more of what john boehner said in that interview. >> -- talk about all kinds of things we may disagree. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows this. he knows that he and i can work together. the election's over. now it's time to get t
correspondent brianna keilar is live for us this morning from washington. john boehner was the guy who said he didn't think a lame duck congress could do big things. what can be done in the next, what did i say, 53 days? >> well, maybe finding some sort of stopgap measure. some sort of framework on tax reform, soledad. i think that's the goal here. the fact is, house republicans and president obama and senate democrats, they don't really have a choice. they have to do something, and that became very clear yesterday when the cbo put out a report showing that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff you're looking at economic calamity. you're looking at unemployment ticking up, perhaps two points. you're looking at a recession next year. so, also listen to the conciliatory language that we're hearing from the hill and that we may be hearing from president obama when he speaks here at the white house this afternoon. listen to what john boehner also said about being reasonable. >> we can talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washing

out of. for example, we think that folks in washington, especially men, should not try to control health care choices that women are perfectly capable of making themselves. >> now, madison, we had a president that shared these beliefs. his name was bill clinton. when he first came into office, his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more so we could reduce our deficit and still invest in the skills and ideas of our people, and at the time the republican congress and a certain senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy, would kill jobs, would hurt the job creators. does this sound familiar? turns out his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs. incomes were up. port was down. our deficit had turned into a surplus. so, wisconsin, our ideas have been tested. we've tried them. they worked. the other side's ideas have also been tested. they didn't work so well. after bill clinton left office during most of the last

. romney wrote about bipartisanship. he says i am offering a contrast to what we're seeing in washington today. we watched as one party has pushed through its agenda without compromising with the other party. there's much gridlock and pettiness dominating while important issues facing the nation while high unemployment go unaddressed. the bickering has to end. i will end it. i will reach across the aisle to solve america's problems. >> you can read their complete opinions by logging on to our website. go to cnn.com/opinion. then go to my facebook page and tell me who you think has the most compelling vision for america's vision. we'll actually read back some of your responses at facebook.com/suzannemalveaux. >>> vice president joe biden back from the battleground state of wisconsin. he says he is stumping on the opposition home court. stansville, wisconsin, that is paul ryan's hometown just about 20 minutes north of beloit. you're looking at live pictures where the vice president is going to be speaking shortly. biden's visit comes just today after the president's trip to green bay, and
in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of standard procedure, but according to a congressionp aide familiar with the matter, the house and senate intelligence committees weren't told about the investigation until just hours before the director announced his resignation. as for questions over whether the timing of the resignation, coming just before genera
started, and i suspect, suzanne, he will have bipartisan support for that in washington d.c. and he will have a lot of support internationally now that the campaign is over. the big question is whether the iranian government will be willing to come in a serious way to the negotiating table. they have not shown that over the last couple of years. i think the pressure is actually going to be on the iranian government. >> do you think that the economic pressure on iran is coming to a breaking point here, a boiling point, where you will see iran come to the table? >> i think the sanctions are beginning to hit the iranian government very hard. both the e.u., oil embargo, the u.s. central bank sanctions, and just look at the indicators of that. the iranian riel, the -- it has been -- the ranian have been hit hard in their inability to use the world banking system because they've been shut off from that system, and so the sanctions are important because they tell the iranians that they are isolated, that they have very few friends in the world, and that they're essentially operating in a r
story "outfront," war in washington. both sides blaming the other for a lack of action on that fiscal cliff. when taxes duoup and spending gets slashed. today, the rhetoric was ratcheted up another notch as mitch mcconnell slammed the president's plan. to raise 1.6 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years. >> an opening bid of $1.6 trillion in new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson bowles or more than any other commission has called for. it's twice as much as the white house seemed ready to agree to during last summer's debt ceiling talks. a joke. >> dick durbin joins me now. good to see you. it's a joke. what do you think? >>. >> i think senator mcconnell needs to take another look at the report. i severed on that commission. a reduction of $4 trillion came from revenue. it was in the range of $1.6 trillion. >> you talk about 1.6 trillion. there's ways to get there in ways that don't necessarily raise tax rates. you could cap deductions at $35,000 and have the estate tax go back to where it was and get $1.3 million. i'm simply making the point there's a loft wa
into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election is all about. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008 when we talked about change, i told i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about c
to affect their vote. in an abc news/washington post poll 47% believe romney would do a better job hand mg the economy. romney is more likely to improve the job situation compared to 42% for president barack obama. paul, i know you love these numbers. it's down to the wire now. i have the campaign schedule. it's crazy. what do they have planned on the final days to the race? >> it's all about location, location, location in the final four days of campaigning before the election. look at the map and where the president will be. look at the map and you get a sense of ohio, ohio, ohio is pretty important. the president making a number of stops in ohio and iowa. he's going end his campaign in iowa. this is the place where he got his first victory in january, 2008. if you look at the map for romney as well, a lot in ohio as well. other states there, one in particular is pennsylvania. he will be there spending one day over the weekend and so will his running mate, paul ryan. are they trying to put pennsylvania in play, a move of strength or desperation. they have different answers on that one. >
washington this morning. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> let's talk about these new laws put in place in many states across the nation. how will this affect voting tuesday? >> in 2011, the brennan center issued a report. when we first saw the onslaught of these laws being introduced across the country. we were extremely worried because it looked like up to 5 million voters would be impacted by these laws in such a way where many of them might have their right to vote encumbered. we issued a new report, however, a year later. it just came out last week -- early this week that showed that because of the pushback that happened across the country, because of the department of justice, citizen referenda, court and other initiatives, there has been a great deal of success in pushingi inin ining respect to these laws. that number is far fewer in terms of how many voters will be impacted. most courts have ruled where there has been litigation that these laws will not go into effect before the november 6th election. we are very hopeful and very exuberant about the fkt that many more v
of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> so that's mitt romney in roanoke, virginia, today. gloria, let's just look at the latest swing state polling. they're showing iowa, new hampshire, wisconsin, they're all leaning toward obama. we showed another poll yesterday showing the president leading ohio, back to ohio, by five points. point-blank, gloria borger, five days left, is time running out for mitt romney? >> sure. there's five days left f. you look out those polls, while most of them are within the margin of error, he would like to have it flipped the other way. having said that, time's also running out for the president. look. this is a tight race. it's tighter than a lot of people ever expected. it's come down to those handful of states. and what it really comes down to is getting the voters to the polls, brooke. that's why there's an emphasis on early voting because you can bus your voters who you know vote for you and get them to vote early. but it's a matter of intensity and enthusiasm and, you know, when you talk to the romney people, they're complaining the polls based on the
happens in washington, you would probably see something along the lines of those, of those kind of rates because the economy will move its way back to the trend growth of 3%, 3.5%. i think one, you have to hope that the macroeconomy goes with you. two, i think the policy can make a difference on the margin. and there's a difference of opinion between the two camps, romney's view that high income tax cuts and deregulation lead to growth. the obama view that it's investments in infrastructure, the work force, things of that nature that will lead to faster growth. and you know, you have to pick one or the other. >> and then quickly, yes or no, will voters take these numbers, these jobs numbers just days before election day, into the voting booth with them? >> probably not. i mean, certainly not the people whose power is out and they're dealing with the hurricane damage and stuff like that. but evidence is pretty clear that people get a general impression of the economy as opposed to looking and sayingering well, this was 171,000 and it was expected to be 125,000 so therefore i'm going to be
washington gridlock. no, it's worse -- look, our taxes are about to go up. not the taxes on our dividends though, right? that's a big part of our retirement. oh, no, it's dividends, too. the rate on our dividends would more than double. but we depend on our dividends to help pay our bills. we worked hard to save. well, the president and congress have got to work together to stop this dividend tax hike. before it's too late. >>> raining rockets and fears of a broader middle east war, bombs flying over gaza early this morning. just take a look at these images. israel is saying that it's gone after 160 so-called terror sites. this just one day after israel killed the leader of hamas's military winging in gaza. today at least 13 other people in gaza were also killed. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the attack is in response for some 200 rocks that have been landing in israel over the past 24 hours alone. 200. and at least three israelis who died as a result. the palestinians who have been seen here trying to put out fires inspect their damage and rush people to get medical atte
back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage. that's not the case in any of the other voting states. if you look at colorado, nevada, then to the midwest. you would have to say in the public polling, the president has a slight advantage. they're all close enough for this to play out on election day. but you mentioned it, and they talked about the stor
need help, they come to washington. and americans expect washington to help. there is a role for the commander in chief, for the president of the united states, when disaster strikes at home. that's what americans expect of their leader. >> were you pleased that the marathon was canceled? >> yeah. i think it was a smart move. i do. it's been -- new yorkers have been really terrific about this. people downtown in manhattan have been four days without light or power. the streets are dark. it's like sarajevo during the siege in the balkans and the thought of more people coming in on top of the people that are already there and the people in and out of hotels, trying to find places to get showers and restaurants closed, basically all of manhattan's population was jammed north of 40th street, so it only makes sense given the uncertainties of this and the pressure on services in manhattan and the discomfiture of people there, don't do the marathon. >> general wesley clark, thank you very much indeed. >> thank you. >>> coming up, rudy giuliani joining me from ohio. what happens when
washington, matea gold. welcome. your lead line, money isn't everything. this is a new set of rules, you know, remove the constraint on the outside ads, presume to be huge advantage specifically for republicans. doesn't seem to have worked. why not? >> it really was a fascinating development. as you mentioned, a record $6 billion on this campaign. largely that spending driven by outside groups that were reporting spending $1 billion. that doesn't even include the perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars in expenditures by tax exempt groups that don't have to report the spending and mitt romney largely the beneficiary of the outside spending in the presidential race of three to one at least. but it was not the game changer that many anticipated it would be and a couple reasons for that. one is, while outside groups helped mitt romney on the air, they really only brought him to parity with the number of ads that were being run on his behalf compared to obama because obama as a candidate got a lower ad rate which had to spend more money by the other groups and number of groups running ads on romn
. a lot of people out in the northern washington, d.c. area, fairfax county, arlington. you go back four years, you see all that blue. this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to win the state of virginia. again, when you call to these communities, they think they'll get it fixed in time for tuesday. >> john, when you talked to the two campaigns, i know this is -- they don't want to talk about it, but does either see this benefiting them? >> it's fascinating that they give you the same answer and how rare is it that they will do that on a question? they say we're not going to talk about that. it would be insensitive and it would be wrong. but then privately, they say for the most part, think they it's a wash, especially if the power comes back on. the obama campaign is worried about the early voting. the ads have not come out and they have not been as active. so they're still slugging it out on the airwaves. privately, both campaigns think if there's any benefit, it will be a benefit to the president of the united states. but both sides think if it is, it's slight. >> th
